If you want to get quotes in the source format (in memory) use the methods from Quotes. Example:

q = Quotes.random      # get a random quote (as as hash table)
#=> {"quote"=>
#   "Tether is \"too big to fail\" - the entire crypto industry utterly\n" +
#   "depends on it. We just topped twenty billion alleged dollars' worth of tethers ($USDT).\n" +
#   "If you think this is sustainable, you're a fool.\n",
#  "date"=>#<Date: 2020-12-13>,
#  "source"=>"https://twitter.com/davidgerard/status/1338215299737407490",
#  "by"=>"David Gerard"}

That’s it for now.
